Can you please tell me approximately how far along into HIV infection fungal skin problems or thrush may appear?
Response from Dr. Bartlett
Fungal skin infections and thrush are related to a person's CD4 count, and tend to occur more commonly in later HIV infection in general. The risk for thrush is higher when the CD4 count is less than 300. However, either may occur at higher CD4 counts.
